    Basically my centre caps are a bit worse for wear as the metal retaining springs have come a drift a few times and been repaired on all 4 and are starting to work themselves free of the retaining spring so I was thinking what centres will fit my 17" boleros on my TQS ???

    Been looking at these on ebay

    I don't have a clue but if the diameter is the same as yours and the way they clip in to your car, then I can't see why not.

    There like a metal plate with four spring fingers to hold them in place and they have popped of the actual caps so I want some that are like the new style with the metal retaining ring and plastic fingers but I dont no the diameter as I don't wana pop them off and damage them even more so I have no centre on one wheel lol

    Ye I've got a spare but it doesnt have one and I don't think it's a genuine spare as the dish of the wheel is differant, but I suppose it will give me a rough idea of size.

    Cheers for mentioning the spare Scott I'm a dumbass I never would of thought of the spare, I've just been and checked it and it measures 52mm then 64mm to the face of the alloy so I'm guessing I need 52mm with a 64mm face.

    Here's some pics of the wheel and it is a genuine audi Ronal wheel but is differant to my others.

    A few pics

    It's definately 52mm I moved the tape measure side to side holding one end to make sure I had centre, but they are the style I'm after just need them to have a face of 64mm so there's not to big of a gap round the caps.

    The blue A4 one looks to have the same as my spare but can't really tell.

    There are three slightly different boleros, widths and offsets are slightly different depending on what they originally came from.

    Not directly related to this thread I know, but be really careful about buying wheel centre caps off Ebay!
    I know a lot of VW/Audi stuff is made in China (in the local VW and Audi assembly plants) but most of the stuff are sheer knock-offs.
    I needed a few centre caps for my Competition alloys (identical to the caps in one of the links above) on my B5 and found a set of 4 for something like £7 delivered from Hong Kong, the picture showed VW Audi logos and part numbers etc and they matched my caps.
    The Genuine price from a stealer is or was at least £7 each.
    I suspected that the Ebay ones might not be up to much, but they were ****.
    They looked fantastic, easily up to OEM appearance (no part number or markings inside cap though!) but the plastic is far too fragile.Even fitting a cap gently to 1 wheel resulted in the locating tabs breaking off.Out of a set of 4, I ended up only using 3.I never plan on removing those caps again as I know the 4 locating tabs/circular ring will simply fall apart on removal.
    As a short-term solution they are OK, but you can't beat Genuine.
